Cargo Picnic Ride Sunday

Join us for the Cargo Bike Picnic Ride this Sunday
Location: Five Points Coffee & Spice - 820 Lomax st. 32204

Time: 2pm

What's a cargo bike? According to Wikipedia, "Freight bicycles, carrier cycles, freight tricycles, cargo bikes, or bakfietsen, are human powered vehicles designed and constructed specifically for transporting large loads." But the reality is any bike you use to transport you and personal items is a cargo bike.

The Cargo Bike Ride is an afternoon of merriment to celebrate the utilitarian and versatility side of the bicycle. Everyone from backpacks to bakfietsen are welcome. don't matter how you get it there as long as it's on a bike.

Matt, I told you I was going to attend this one, and...I think I'm really gonna do it this time! Looking forward to putting the "mettle to the pedal", after being cooped up all evening, yesterday, grading papers!

Matt & Abishek, that was a mighty fine event you put on yesterday, good times.

See you at the Folk Fest this next weekend I hope: Matt, there'll be a pop quiz on those fallacies then, so study up. ;)
